A Rare Case Report on Triorchidism

Background: Polyorchidism is an uncommon congenital disorder marked by the presence of an extra testis. Only about 200 cases have been documented worldwide. It has a chance of malignancy, thus it needs to be diagnosed and followed up on right away. Polyorchidism management is equivocal, with factors such as the patient’s age, location, size, and anatomical arrangement of the testicular system all having a part.

Presentation of a Case: On clinical and sonographic evaluation, a 28-year-old male presented with a non-tender scrotal bulge that was identified as triorchidism (the most common type of polyorchidism). Type 2 polyorchidism was present, along with a normal epididymis and vas deference. The situation was handled cautiously, and regular follow-up was recommended. Polyorchidism is a congenital abnormality that is highly unusual. Patients with polyorchidism can be treated conservatively. The management plan will be influenced by the reproductive potential as well as possible associated symptoms and problems such as cryptorchidism, inguinal hernia, and torsion. If the supernumerary testis is suspected of developing neoplastic transformation, it should be removed.
